The internet, e-mail, and social media are all powerful tools that have made our lives better and our world more connected. But they also make us more susceptible to those trying to take advantage of us. Please be careful and if you're ever in doubt - stop and contact someone you know and trust to verify.

It often seems that we are living in a world that is more divided than it's ever been. But I think we need to take time, and Black History Month is a perfect time, to remember back to another time that our country was deeply divided. We take it for granted that a person, no matter the pigment of their skin, has the ability to go anywhere and do what they desire in the United States. We NEED to learn about the struggle, so that we aren't destined to go back there again. And the legacy that I take from Marion Reeves, Harvey Gantt, and Dr. Edwards - we need to listen to everyone, be thoughtful of their concerns, and carry yourself with dignity and restraint.
